Growing pains

Does your child complain of pain in their legs? Have they recently grown or are starting a growth spurt? It could be growing pains.

Did you know osteopathic treatment can help remove the strain that's causing their growing pains?
Growing pains mostly involves aching in the lower legs at night. This can wake up the child but there is no swelling or restriction of movement with these pains. During rapid growth phases, the child’s bone lengthens before his muscles and tendons are able to stretch correspondingly. This can cause pain which is worsened if there is restricted movement elsewhere pulling even harder on the muscle or joint. Osteopathic treatment can straighten your child back up to help relieve the pain.
